Switching to AT&T fiber
« on: December 12, 2017, 07:59:46 pm »
I currently use my local cable company as my ISP. Iíll probably eventually switch to Google Fiber but it looks to be at least a year before they have their network completed in my area. In the meantime Iím thinking about AT&T fiber. Their prices are much cheaper than my current ISL and speeds would be at least doubled.

Not sure what changes I might need to make in my WAN configuration though (if any). Currently I get an IP via DHCP from my cable modem. I think that this would probably be the same with whatever equipment AT&T provides, but thatís just a guess on my part. I havenít been able to find any details on exactly what equipment they issue. Hoping other users might have some experience with this and any other gotchas I might need to watch out for?
